“My brave mom [Anna Pořízková] is a part of this trial,” the 55-year-old former SI Swimsuit model captioned her post on Instagram.

“At 74, she is an unstoppable force,” she added. “We haven’t had a very easy time of our relationship- but that doesn’t stop me from admiring her.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The supermodel continued, noting “(To recap, at seventy , she and my papa Joe joined the peace corps to open a cancer clinic and teach midwifery at a Ugandan university- they for married at 73 in the most romantic wedding in Italy, and now, at 74, she’s testing out a vaccine so the world can keep going.)”

The model concluded her sweet post by sharing that she’s “equal parts inspired, proud and horrified.”

According to the NY Post report, “The test results were based on data involving the first 45 people enrolled in the study, all of whom were 18 to 55 years old. Results from a second portion of the trial that involved older people weren’t yet available.”

Clearly, this is great news.
